Emilie started her project "Adopt Penguin Books Postcards" inspired by Postmuse's Orphaned Project. She bought a box of 100 Penguin Books Postcards, and now she is offering them in adoption.
The goal is find people who had read every single book. But it is not always easy. As she says:
There are a lot of weird out of print books, and I doubt I'll ever find someone who's read #82. Plats du Jour or Foreign Food (A Penguin Handbook) or #86 Scootering (A Penguin Handbook).If you request a postcard, she will sent it to you in an envelope, and then on the back you will write something about the book (what you thought of it, a memory linked to it...), and then send it back to her. It is easy! You can read see the list here, and read about the adopted postcards here. I encourage you to participate in this project. The only problem is that the postcards are really beautiful, so it is difficult to part with the postcard... Here is my Penguin adopted postcard:
However, I bet there are people who would have something fun to say about those topics... so if there is a non-novel that you would like to adopt, feel free, even if you haven't read it. For the present time though, if it is a novel, please, only request it if you've read it.
